(Note: due to the length of this lesson it will be presented in five
In stage seven all the pieces of your empath training were set into
place. You learned about Gamma, the source of empathic information and
ways to empower that source. At this stage you will have chosen a tool
or set of tools to work with your empathic source and will have begun
the practice of empowering your tools.
You are now ready to learn the basics of interpreting and working
with the empathic language of Dreamtongue;.to learn how the letters
of the empathic Alphabet fit together to form words, images, and messages.
This lesson will be like a spelling primer,
introducing you to pieces of the empathic language that you can use
to learn the larger forms of expression; think of it as an "empathic
dictionary." You can learn this primer by first focusing on the
areas that are of interest to you. In time you can learn the other areas
for greater expansion of your abilities.
The language of Dreamtongue, by any name, is spoken by all living things.
At the nuclear level of the atom, all things can be considered to have
life. Dreamtongue is the interconnected communications between
You are more likely to be aware of the empathic language between people,
but it occurs between animals, plants, and insects as well. Dreamtongue
occurs through all of nature, for mother Earth herself is a living thing.
The Earth speaks to you through Dreamtongue. As your understanding of
this greater meta-communication process increases, so too will your
Since Dreamtongue is the all pervasive language of existence there
is no end to the possible uses and formats available to an Empath. As
a student of Dreamtongue you have stepped into a wonderful world of
limitless possibilities. To guide you in your learning of the empathic
language I have chosen one area to focus the lesson. I will focus on
the interactions between people. After learning about interactions your
journey will have just begun as you explore Dreamtongue communication
with animals, plants, and beyond.
In the same way that you can fit into a new culture or country by learning
the language, the learning of Dreamtongue will help you become a citizen
of a larger empathic world with vast amounts of new information. Your
challenge as a budding Empath will be to learn how you can use that
information and how that information impacts your life. To deal with
those challenges I encourage you to work with an "Empath's Circle,"
described in the next lesson.
Interpreting the Empathic Language of Another Person
The five levels of Dreamtongue, indicated by the five empathic letters,
apply to every aspect of communication.
The following symbol composite represents every person you encounter:
the physical body, appearance, body language and behavior.
is the emotional and psychological state, the person's overall comfort
level, the individual's orientation to an experience, the associations
the individual is making, and the general mood that is being conveyed.
is the individuality, what is unique about the individual mentally/intellectually,
the specific personality, the individual's experience in life, the education,
and memories, the thoughts and ways of thinking, and the types of imagery
the individual uses to communicate (including the types of words most
commonly used by that person).
is what shapes the personality, it is the contextual world view of
the individual, the individual's perception of things, it is to a larger
extent the unconscious which is filled with imagery from all levels.
It is the own empathic awareness of that person whether conscious or
unconscious. Delta is the type of "pictures" someone paints
with their overall communication.
the very soul of the person, it is the values and the beliefs that the
individual holds dear; it is what gives meaning to that person's life,
it is what is loved and what is enjoyed by that person. It is the source
of pleasure as well as of pain, it is the guiding force of that life
either consciously or unconsciously, and it is the essential energy
state of that person.
Everything you can understand about the five empathic levels as related
to yourself also applies to other people. As an empath you will use
your understanding of yourself to understand others. What you
know about yourself, you know about everyone else.
Each level of empathic language has five levels of expression. For
example, the Beta level of body language has five levels of expression:
1. "Actions Speak Louder Than Words"
(the Beta of Beta) describes
the Beta level of body language -- the level where your body speaks
for itself. The Beta level of body language comes from how you are using
your body. A person doing aerobics uses his or her body to exercise.
To figure out what the Beta level of a persons body language simply
answer this question, " What is it they are using their body to
do?" Once you know that, you know how the empathic energy is being
utilized on the physical level.
Empathic energy is always present and is always in use: physically,
emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Observation of action is the
first pathway to empathic perception. Inexperienced Empaths like to
debate over this point by saying, "the whole thing that makes me
an 'empath' is that I can perceive things that are not visible."
To advance in your abilities you must understand that all perception/communication
exists on a continuum. Beta represents the "outermost" extent
of the continuum and Gamma represents the innermost extent of the continuum.
Your ability to move from one end of the continuum to another represents
the level of mastery you have developed over your own empathic functioning.
When you combined observation of action/body language with observation
of intuition you amplify your perception many times over. True empathic
functioning does not solely rely upon extra-sensory perception. Instead
it relies on heightened degrees of sensitivity and awareness. Heightened
sensitivity and awareness act as a greater conduit to intuition. It
is critical to grasp this principle before proceeding in the lesson.
2. "Acting How You Feel"-- (the
Alpha of Beta) indicates how emotional states reflect
in your body behaviors. On this level your body acts as a empathic mirror.
Your form follows your thoughts. When you are sad you slump and when
you are excited you stand up straight.
Most people show what they are feeling by their expressions and by
the way they are holding their bodies. Some people are expert at hiding
their feelings (except from us Empaths, right?). To know the Alpha level
of a person's body language answer this question, "What emotional
state is the person projecting through their posture, movement, and
Now, keep in mind, as we go through this list, we are going deeper
and deeper into the person. If you are doing consultations this is an
excellent map to follow.
3. "Acting Out Your Thoughts" (the
Theta of Beta) sums up the Theta level of body language
- when your body reflects your thoughts. I refer to you
when describing these levels because you must keep in mind that you
do all the same things that other people do. Use your self to study
these levels. Observe your own behavior and you will learn a lot about
When you gesture to express your ideas or experiences you are using
Theta body language. For example, hand movements to show the width or
height of something. A person who gestures a great deal with their hands
while talking is likely to be a person who is very connected in some
way to the Theta level. This type of person is frequently very intuitive.
To pinpoint the Theta level of a person's body language answer the
following question, "How is this person using body
to communicate thought?" Some people use their
bodies in a very minimal way to express their thoughts. This kind of
behavior can indicate a person who is very guarded and possibly fearful,
although there are other possibilities to consider. Once you pinpoint
the Theta level, or any level for that matter, you empathically connect
with that level.
4. "The Freudian Slip On A Banana Peel"
(the Delta of Beta) happens
at the Delta level of body language and occurs through unconscious
body signs. For example, you may be standing farther back from someone
you do not like or trust, or standing close and leaning in towards someone
you are very interested in, without being aware of it. If this behavior
is intentional, then it comes from the Alpha level with a desire to
communicate a feeling. When you are not aware of the body language
you are expressing, the unconscious level of Delta is at work.
This type of body language indicates when a person is most open to
empathic probing and communication. It takes tact and skill to work
with this level of communication. Intuition regarding Delta body language
can form profound empathic links for an Empath performing a "empathic
reading." To assess the Delta level of a person's body language,
ask a test question. You form the test question by your impressions
and intuition. First determine what your impression is about the person's
For example, if you have the impression that the person is uncomfortable,
ask, "Are you feeling uncomfortable?" If the subject is surprised
and denies feeling uncomfortable (yet you keep getting the impression
that he or she is definitely uneasy), chances are real high that you
have tapped into the Delta level of the body language.
A word of advice -- be sensitive to what test questions you ask. If
someone is revealing something very awkward to you by body language,
don't just pull the rug out from under them. An empathetic and supportive
approach is a critical empathic skill. I have been shocked and dismayed
by individuals who claim to be "Empaths" yet display little
to no empathy.
5. "Aura Reading" pertains to the
(the Gamma of Beta)
Gamma level of body language, how holographic or spiritual information
is conveyed through your body movements and states. It is truly amazing
to realize just how much communication is going on at any given point
in time! Being an Empath means being aware of this communication and
acting upon that awareness.
The truth of Dreamtongue is that everything is communication! Period.
An Empath is a person who trains to understand, read,
and use this universe of communication. Since the Gamma level
expresses through all the other levels, all expressions through the
body relate to the Gamma level of body language. You can single out
the Gamma level by considering the aura, the overall energy impression
of the person. It is the gestalt, or combination of all
Think of Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta as puzzle pieces. When you put
them all together you get the Gamma. Gamma expressed through Beta specifically
relates to the energy states of expansion versus contraction, relaxation
versus tension, withdrawn versus open; all perceptible through Beta.
Your ability to read Beta body language develops by simply observing
human behavior. Specifically noticing body posture, gestures, movement,
and spatial relationships trains your empathic awareness to read Beta
language. As you add Alpha to your repertoire, you will begin to notice
the feelings or responses you have to what you are observing.
Reading the aura can start with your eyes (Beta) and reach into deeper
levels of information. All living things have an energy field (Gamma).
This is like a light around the body. You and everyone around you has
this light around their body. This light only registers through specialized
instruments and empathic senses.
There are ways to train your eyes to see the aura. What I offer involves
learning to see the aura in your mind's eye. The following is an exercise
you can practice with a friend.
Training Yourself To See Auras
First, have someone stand in front of you about three feet or more
away. Practice taking in their entire image without focusing on any
details. You will notice that as you do this you are not just looking
at the body, you are also developing a mental image of the person. As
you become more aware of the mental image you will see light and energy
around the person.
When you first start this exercise I want you to only concern yourself
with developing the ability to see this energy field and not worry about
interpreting it. After you have developed the ability to see the aura
(Gamma field) immediately when you see a person then begin to interpret
what you are seeing. Refer to the Lesson Seven
for understanding Gamma.
Also, keep in mind that interpreting empathic data involves all level
of your being. I do not endorse exercises where you have someone stand
in front of a white wall in order to see the aura. This method relies
on unintentional tricks of the eye and nervous system and does not truly
reveal anything about auras.
Beta energy also occurs and expresses through speaking as well as
body language. The Beta voice occurs when spoken language focuses on
external events and observations. Spoken Beta deals with declarative
and directive statements, such as "There is the house," and,"
This is my dog," and, "Pick up the book." Whenever you
are declaring what something is or trying to direct activity around
you, then you are using a Beta voice. You will learn more about empath
voices in the next lesson.
